Sweet Blossom

Today I'm sharing project using the Sweet Blossom image from Whimsy Stamps for my One Crazy Stamper post! 
I colored her up with Copic markers:  B99, B97, B95, B41, YG67, YG17,YG13, E02, E00, E47, E44, E43, E31, YR27, YR14, Y35, Y21.

I distressed the image edges with Tim Holtz's Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint.
I love using embroidery on a card to dress it up a bit.  This is the first time I used three different coordinating threads to frame my image.  I create a pattern I like, pierce it freehand and then stitch it up!

Designer papers are from BasicGrey's Clippings collection.  I then framed the panel in a 9 x 9 inch frame that my husband made for me.  I left the glass out for the purpose of the photo.
